COMMENTS & QUESTIONS
I’m a novice, and have been to some of Annette’s classes recently. She’s a kind and patient teacher. If you want to try sketching in a supportive space, I can recommend Annette’s sessions.
I really enjoyed the workshop with Annette! She’s so friendly and she knows how make you feel confident 🙂 (even if you never sketched before…)
It was a lovely day!! I look forward to the next one!
Thank You Annette!!
Thanks so much for yesterday, it was very enlightening, and fun.
The tips are great and I’ll refer to them as I hopefully continue my sketching. I look forward to doing another session with you.
I spent a wonderful day in Montpellier at one of Annette’s beginner workshops. I’m amazed at how much I learned in just a few hours. Annette is a great teacher and really made me feel comfortable – I have gone from thinking “I just can’t draw”, to “I CAN, and it’s fun!”. Annette gave so many useful little tips along the way, which made all the difference to my feeling capable and wanting to continue sketching. Added bonus: I now have a lovely souvenir of the beautiful Montpellier architecture!
Many thanks to Annette for a great introduction to sketching last Saturday in Montpellier. A day packed with information, advice and encouragement. A much needed boost to my confidence. Can’t wait for the next one! 💕💕💕
The most patient, encouraging and talented teacher there is. A micro grain of creativity will be rooted out by Annette and hey presto…. a new world of art and fun.
Thank you again for making my holiday so interesting.
Nous avons passé un week-end formidable avec Annette à Bizes Minervois les 17 et 18 octobre : Annette nous a guidées avec fermeté et une grande gentillesse pour des exercices très variés et nous a fait découvrir des techniques nouvelles. merci beaucoup Annettte et à la prochaine fois !
This was a great workshop by one of my favourite watercolour artists. The pace was fast (although I do appreciate the time restraints) and I was able to follow along for most of it and then complete any finishing touches afterwards. The PDF was a welcome addition as a step by step guide too.
If you look for a day that can make you completely happy, then join a sketching class with Annette Morris – it was so much fun, also lovely relaxing, surrounded by nice people, it was just great! It was like playing golf, only much better! Thank you so much and hopefully I can join another class soon again!
Enjoyed a great 4 day sketching holiday with Annette in Quarante, France. Excellent tuition with useful exercises and tips. I think I became a little more colourful!! Annette is very organised, inspirational and enthusiastic. The bed and breakfast accommodation with Annika was “palatial” but so relaxed and comfortable that it was like staying with an old friend. I would recommend this holiday to all sketchers. Kaye
You don’t have to be an artist or any good at drawing to have a fabulous time with Annette. First time sketching and the time flew past. And our sketches actually look like something!!! Great time and learned so much.
I’ve been meaning to say thank you; I don’t think I would have had the courage to make this painting (Keifer’s Dream) if we’d not done our splashing session together.
We are both so delighted with our time spent with you. We so appreciate your kindness, patience and encouragement! You are awesome!
My wife Heather started zoom sketching classes with Annette Morris of Sketch Languedoc during the lockdowns in the UK. She was thrilled with how quickly Annette’s teaching yielded results. However, nothing is as much fun as being outside in the fresh air in a beautiful Covid safe setting. If you are in the area, don’t miss her brilliant workshops or sign up for her Zoom classes online.
I enjoyed it very much. I am familiar with Annette’s teaching style and so I was able to sketch along, but I think that would be possible if not familiar. The follow-up video allows another attempt at the learner’s pace and also further practice.
I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful morning. It was so enjoyable and therapeutic!
Thank you very much for the class on Tuesday. We were very impressed with the amount of things we were able to learn from you in such a short time.
Annette is a wonderful teacher and has a great style. She is relaxed, fun to be with, and very helpful. I highly recommend her!
It was fantastic, I love her style. I was able to follow along (barely), and got a reasonable sketch at the end.
